Thank you to emergency crews for their support after our crash on A141

WE sit at home and watch TV programmes depicting road traffic accidents and the work of police, paramedics and fire and rescue teams, but never expect these things to happen to you.

So when it does, it all seems somewhat surreal.

Last Thursday afternoon, my wife Yvonne and I suffered a rear end collision to our Mercedes car whilst leaving the temporary speed restriction in Wisbech Road, Westry.

Yvonne suffered severe whiplash pain to her neck and shoulders and back and it was feared initially that she had suffered a neck spinal injury.

Paramedics decided that she could not be moved and summoned the fire service. Two tenders from March and the rescue vehicle from Dogsthorpe arrived and the combined crews cut the roof from the car.

They safely removed her on a backboard and head restraint and transported her by ambulance to Hinchingbrooke Hospital. After a series of X-rays and medical examination, she was allowed to go home.

We wish to thank the March paramedics and the ambulance crew from King’s Lynn for their dedication and care, also the fire and rescue crews for the rescue and the great care with which they evacuated Yvonne the car.

Pc McMurray from Wisbech was the first to arrive after our 999 call and he was brilliant. He assisted us in removing the car off the road, was extremely helpful throughout the proceedings, and stayed on the scene until our car had been recovered.

He phoned the following day to ask how Yvonne had got on. Yvonne is now recovering but in great pain.

We have some super people doing these jobs and you just never know when you are going to need them to be there for you.

THANK YOU to ALL of you guys, from Yvonne and I.
